3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the brewery in Paso. A dumbed down craft Pale Ale. Certainly malty rather than hoppy lift. Has the style but very commercial. Reminds me of the commercial Burton beers.

Smoking meat, and a buddy dropped this on me on a wonderful summerish day. Smells of sweet vanilla and hops, tastes of slight vanilla wish a finish of sweetness. This is a very refreshing brew. Well worth trying out!
